HIMO Licensing Policy

The Housing Act 2004 introduced a new mandatory licensing system for certain types of Houses in Multiple Occupation. Following the consultation by central government in late 2015 the Statutory Instrument 2018 No 221 was issued. From 1st October 2018 the scope of licenses has been increased to include all Houses in Multiple Occupation occupied by 5 or more people in 2 or more households. This paper sets out how South Holland District Council meets the requirements of the new legislation.
